It's no news to most of us that the world can be pretty crappy sometimes. But beauty like Nikkala Stott's reminds us that it can be pretty good too. So how do we maximize the good stuff and minimize the bad? Good question. The first step is to realize that there is goodness out there, and beauty, and love, and joy, and to keep an open heart in case they should come into your life today. Don't miss them. The next step is to realize that it's your responsibility to create these things for yourself. It's always been up to YOU to create a perfect world, and any time you spend waiting for someone else to make things right is time wasted. So sing out, that those around you might take heart. And remember that any time you spend working towards a perfect world, is time spent living in it.
